Bumper Thought: Be Well-Minded

I saw this bumper sticker today while I was out walking with Tucker, a beautiful Golden Retriever:

"A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose".

This thought probably paid quick dividends for me today: My car was hit after leaving Tucker's house. The woman had tried to squeeze past me while driving an over-sized courtesy van for a car rental company. She caught my car on the driver's side rear quarter panel and almost ripped off the gas tank cover. After moving out of traffic to exchange information and wait for a police officer to come take a report, she repeatedly used some pretty foul language telling her co-workers what had happened. I wasn't so much mad about all this as it was I felt incredibly inconvenienced by all of it. 

This bumper message helped ... even after my own bumper got beat up.
